1.Have you fallen in love with a pendant?  Consider the size of the space where the pendant will feature in.  If it is oversized it will clutter the room, undersized and it will look out of place.  The modern pendant lights shown here have the perfect symmetry.  Each pendant has been hung at exactly the same height to create perfect lighting over the kitchen bench.  I love how they bring a splash of colour to the space as well.

This glass pendant light from Beacon Lighting compliments the dining room table perfectly.  It does not overshadow it all even though it is of large scale.  It is the perfect size for this space and only one is needed.  If you added another one it would clutter the space.

2. Clustering is a lighting trend you could consider.  Choose an odd number though starting with 3 or 5 pendant lights and cluster them together.  Hang them at different heights too to add interest. Experiment with different shapes and different colours such as kitchen pendant lights to create some real drama.

3. Also consider dimmers for your pendants.  You could also have separate switches for each pendant to create the perfect ambience.  This is lovely in a living room when you are watching TV at night and don’t want bright lights on.
